Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

CBI to quiz Shehla Masood murder accused for 3 days

Bhopal -  The CBI Saturday got three days' remand of Saba Farooqui, accused of involvement in RTI activist Shehla Masood’s murder last year, from a Madhya Pradesh court.

Farooqui is a close friend of arrested co-accused Zahida Parvez. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) also recovered a car which was allegedly used to give money to the suspected  contract killers by Parvez.

The CBI presented Farooqui before CBI Special Court Judge Shubra Singh in Indore and demanded her 10 days' remand but the court allowed them only three days' custody.

Along with Farooqui, the CBI also got the remand of Parvez and co-accused Shaqib till March 6.

According to the probe agency, Parvez, with the help of Shaqib, contacted contract killers Irfan Ali and Salim Olanga of Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh to murder Masood.

Ali was arrested in Kanpur. Olanga is dead.

Sources said the CBI had got remand of Ali Saturday from a Kanpur court and will bring him to Bhopal for investigation.

The investigation agency’s officials earlier reached a vehicle showroom in the state capital and recovered a car which was exchanged two weeks back by Parvez. The car is registered in the  name of her husband Asad Parvez.

Masood, 32, was shot dead in front of her house Aug 16 last year. The CBI took over the case three weeks after the murder.
